Title: Omoo: A Narrative of Adventures in the South Seas
Author: Herman Melville - Herman Melville was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist, and poet. He is best known for his novel "Moby-Dick" and the posthumous novella "Billy Budd." His first three books gained much contemporary attention (the first, "Typee," becoming a bestseller), and after a fast-blooming literary success in the late 1840s, his popularity declined precipitously in the mid-1850s and never recovered during his lifetime. When he died in 1891, he was almost completely forgotten. It was not until the "Melville Revival" in the early 20th century that his work won recognition, especially "Moby-Dick," which was hailed as one of the literary masterpieces of both American and world literature. He was the first writer to have his works collected and published by the Library of America.

Title: Works of Mrs. Jameson
Author: Anna Brownell Jameson - Anna Brownell Jameson was a British writer.  In 1821 she was engaged to Robert Jameson. The engagement was broken off, and Anna Murphy accompanied a young pupil to Italy, writing in a fictitious character a narrative of what she saw and did. She gave this diary to a bookseller on condition of receiving a guitar if he secured any profits. Colburn ultimately published it as "The Diary of an Ennuyée" (1826), which attracted much attention.

The first work which displayed her powers of original thought was her "Characteristics of Women" (1832). These analyses of William Shakespeare's heroines are remarkable for their delicacy of critical insight and fineness of literary touch. They are the result of a penetrating but essentially feminine mind, applied to the study of individuals of its own sex, detecting characteristics and defining differences not perceived by the ordinary critic and entirely overlooked by the general reader.

In 1836, Jameson was summoned to Canada by her husband, who had been appointed chief justice of the province of Upper Canada. He failed to meet her at New York, and she was left to make her way alone in winter to Toronto. Here she began the travelogue of her journey, "Winter Studies and Summer Rambles in Canada," which was published in Britain in 1838. After eight months of traveling and writing in Canada, she felt it useless to prolong a life far from all ties of family happiness and opportunities for a woman of her class and education. Before leaving, she undertook a journey to the depths of the Indian settlements in Canada; she explored Lake Huron, and saw much of emigrant and aboriginal life unknown to colonial travelers. She returned to Great Britain in 1837.

At this period Jameson began making careful notes of the chief private art collections in and near London. The result appeared in her "Companion to the Private Galleries" (1842), followed in the same year by the "Handbook to the Public Galleries." She edited the "Memoirs of the Early Italian Painters" in 1845. A volume of essays published in 1846 contains one of Jameson's best pieces of work, "The House of Titian." In 1847 she went to Italy with her niece and subsequent biographer ("Memoirs," 1878), Gerardine Bate, to collect materials for the work on which her reputation rests: her series of "Sacred and Legendary Art." The time was ripe for such contributions to the traveler's library. The "Acta Sanctorum" and the "Book of the Golden Legend" had had their readers, but no one had ever pointed out the connection between these tales and the works of Christian art. The way to these studies had been pointed out in the preface to "Kugler's Handbook of Italian Painting" by Sir Charles Eastlake, who had intended pursuing the subject himself.

She also took a keen interest in questions affecting the education, occupations, and maintenance of her own sex. Her early essay on "The Relative Social Position of Mothers and Governesses" was the work of one who knew both sides; and in no respect does she more clearly prove the falseness of the position she describes than in the certainty with which she predicts its eventual reform. To her we owe the first popular enunciation of the principle of male and female co-operation in works of mercy and education. In her later years she took up a succession of subjects all bearing on the same principles of active benevolence and the best ways of carrying them into practice. Sisters of charity, hospitals, penitentiaries, prisons, and workhouses all claimed her interest -- all more or less included under those definitions of "the communion of love and communion of labour" which are inseparably connected with her memory.

Title: Child Star: An Autobiography
Author: Shirley Temple Black - Shirley Jane Temple, later Shirley Temple Black, is an American film and television actress, singer, dancer, autobiographer, and former U.S. Ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia. She began her film career in 1932 at the age of four (thought by the public to be three), and in 1934, skyrocketed to superstardom in "Bright Eyes," a feature film designed specifically for her talents. She received a special Juvenile Academy Award in February 1935, and film hits such as "Curly Top" and "Heidi" followed year after year during the mid-to-late 1930s. Licensed merchandise that capitalized on her wholesome image included dolls, dishes, and clothing. Her box office popularity waned as she reached adolescence, and she left the film industry at the age of 12 to attend high school. She appeared in a few films of varying quality in her mid-to-late teens, and retired completely from films in 1950 at the age of 22. She was the top box-office draw four years in a row (1935–38) in a Motion Picture Herald poll.

Temple returned to show business in 1958 with a two-season television anthology series of fairy tale adaptations. She made guest appearances on various television shows in the early 1960s and filmed a sitcom pilot that was never released. She sat on the boards of many corporations and organizations including The Walt Disney Company, Del Monte Foods, and the National Wildlife Federation. In 1967, she ran unsuccessfully for United States Congress, and was appointed United States Ambassador to Ghana in 1974 and to Czechoslovakia in 1989. In 1988, she published her autobiography, "Child Star." Temple is the recipient of many awards and honors including Kennedy Center Honors and a Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award.
